Christmas is a holiday we all know and love. It is when we get to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, and gather together with our friends and family. Another part of Christmas that everyone loves is giving and receiving gifts! It is so exciting to receive a gift for Christmas, especially for young children. However, there are a lot of children whose families cannot afford to get them anything for Christmas. This happens a lot in the Philippines, where the people our team ministers to are just trying to make it day by day.
Every year for Christmas, our Filipino staff goes above and beyond to provide Christmas for needy children and families. They throw a giant Christmas party where they share a meal, give gifts, sing songs, and hear a presentation of the gospel. It is a day filled with fun and laughter that the children look forward to every year!
This year we are looking to provide Christmas for 407 children. They will all receive a box of yummy food as their gift this year! The cost to provide this for them per child is $25. Help us make a difference this Christmas by sponsoring a child!
You can also mail your donation to:

When I think of what the holidays are all about, I think of giving back and helping others. I think of all the people who are less fortunate than I am. My life verse is Colossians 3:17. It says, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Everything we do this holiday season, do it in the name Jesus, and make some children’s dreams come true this Christmas!
